Here is an exchange I spotted on a FB page. Reproducing without specific permission, but presumed permitted by public display:

Ravi Patel - LMAO to all that, I was expecting it though Ignoring all the grammatical & spelling errors (including screwing up Gandhi's name), let me dissect your comments- " but every Gujjus feel proud to be have a Narendra Modi as CM of our State"

Really, that's a generalization. So, no Gujarati thinks beyond Modi? You got any evidence for that? After all, extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence.

I got many resident Gujju friends who are vehemently anti-Modi, what say Kiran sir, Hasan sir, Gaurangi ji, Jatin, Arastu, Brijesh, Nabeel, Yash and expat Gujjus Amit sir, Jay & Ghanshyam. "and do you know all majority freedom fighter were only from Gujrat and we got freedom just bcs of Gujarat" Hmm. I can recall Gandhi & Vallabhai Patel as well as the extremist Mohan Lal Pandya. Okie, Jinnah too was from

Kutchch, but then right-wingers can't be proud of him, can they?


So, if Gujarat gave India freedom, it also gave it the partition, courtesy Jinnah. Or do Muslims don't qualify as Gujjus?


I'll also consider Dadabhai Naoroji & Pherozeshah Mehta as Gujjus, but weren't they Parsis?

Now FYI, Jawaharlal Nehru was a Kashmiri Pandit, Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose was a Bengali and so were Rash Behari Bose, Khudiram Bose (these 3 were not related btw) as well as Jatin Das, Bipin Chandra Pal, Sri Aurbindo, Prafulla Chaki, Master Surya Sen & Bina Das. Bhagat Singh, Sukhdev Thapar, Uddham Singh, Lala Lajpat Rai, Baldev Singh were all Punjabis. Gopal Krishna Gokhle, Bal Gangadhar Tilak, Rajguru, Acharya Vinoba Bhave & the Chapekar brothers were all Maharashtrians. Even Tatya Tope & Rani Laxmibai of Jhansi had their origins in Maharashtra. K. Kamaraj, C Rajgopalachari, Subramanya Bharathy & Laxmi Sehgal (nee Swaminathan) were all Tamils. Lal Bahadur Shastri, Chandrashekhar Azad, Rammanohar Lohia, Ram Prasad Bismil & Ashfaqulla Khan were all from

Uttar Pradesh. And so was Mangal Pandey. J. B. Kripalani was a Sindhi and Jai Prakash Narayan and

Rajendra Prasad were Biharis.


And now for this bull crap from you - "today world fastest developing state is Gujarat, City is

Ahmadabad, 4th is Surat. Gujarat = 24 hrs electricity supply, Gud infra facility, daily 3 time water supply in 100% villages, gas pipeline in villages, 10%+ GDP grpwth rate, only 4% VAT" Now Patel saab, the Indian state with the highest GDP is - Tamil Nadu (No BJP government there)

The Indian state with the highest growth rate is Bihar (again no BJP government there).

The Indian state with the highest literacy rate i.e. 97% is Mizroam in the North-East (forget any BJP there)


The Indian state considered to be the best FDI destination by foreign investors is Odisha (no BJP government there) The Indian state where most females are employed and outnumber males when it comes to sex ratio is Kerala. And you still believe your Namo ruled Gujarat is great?

I pity you
